Sad to hear this.

Marvin was always awesome to deal with.

I just logged in after a long absence. This is not the news I was hoping to find. I have been dealing with Marvin for over 20 years. I still remember, and own, the first gun I bought from him, a Crosman 400. I remember him going out of his way to meet me before I had a vehicle.

I've been meaning to message him for the last few years, wanted to sell him bunch of guns I want to get rid of. Like they say, if you're thinking about someone, reach out. They may be gone tomorrow.

RIP Marvin, you were one of a kind.

The man was larger than life, with a personality and smile that good could fill a room. There have been very few in the air gunning community who have been as kind, supportive and considerate to me as he was. He always had that one gun I was looking for. I remember on one of my visits to his office, he pulled out a LNIB Sharp Innova, along with several beautiful, mint condition vintage Crosmans that he knew was my weak spot. I really think Marvin got more satisfaction out of seeing others happy than anything. The man had this seemingly boundless energy that I was always in awe of. He not only attended every airgun show, but every firearms show as well here in Ontario. To say he will be missed would be a huge understatement. Rest in peace my friend and I will see you when I get there.

My first purchase was a Black Crosman Kimar CK92 on May 22 2016. The second a Nickel Crosman Kimar CK92 on February 18 2017. He wrote in the email "There is a LIVE co2 in (with the safety on) soooo be CAREFUL". Every purchase was followed by "Please let me know when you receive your NEW TOY".

Never had the pleasure to meet Mr. Marvin in person but I did purchase quite a few nice items from him where I had a trusting relationship and he had my shipping address on file. So sad. I missed him when his website went down during Covid. Assumed it was because he wasn't heading South on vacation anymore. His website was awesome as I checked it almost daily and now I miss the Head Gun even more. A great guy and a legend in the Airgun community.

Sad to hear this, news, and only now too.

I believe I did some business with him once at a gunshow though.

Was very kind, even when I ended up returning something.

I just PMed him, hoping he was ok and back to regular gun shows. He was a great man. Huge loss to the hobby, he was an anchor for sure. Always full of good energy and a big smile.
My late condolences to his family.

I am deeply saddened to hear about Marvin passing away. I had been dealing with him for many years. Such a great man and has been a true pillar of our airgun community.
Mr. Marvin will be sorely missed.
Rest In peace.

Had the pleasure of meeting him late at night when he delivered a Makarov to me. Very nice gentlemen will be missed.
